Sathguru Bodha 9

Golden words of HH Sri VV Sridhar Guruji

I WOULD LOVE TO SIT AND BLINK FOR I KNOW NOTHING BUT THE FAITH THAT SOME WHERE THE BLINKS WILL LINK ME TO GOD....COME ON KIDS , LET US ALL SHUN THE DOERSHIP AND BLINK JOINTLY FOR THAT COSMIC UNION...

WE NEVER GROW UP, BUT WE LEARNT TO ACT SO IN PUBLIC...

WHEN YOU RECOMMEND SOME ONE TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THIS GROUP SRIDHARAAMRITHAM, FIND OUT WHETHER THEY ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN THE SUBJECT MATTER WE DISCUSS.... I FIND SOME OF THEM STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND OUR VIEWS AND IDEAS ON THE SUBJECT.... THEIR SCHOOL OF THOUGHT IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT AND THEY FIND IT DIFFICULT TO DIGEST WHAT WE SAY.... OUR AIM IS NOT TO CONFUSE ANY ONE..EVERY SCHOOL, EVERY MASTER WANTS THEIR DISCIPLES AND DEVOTEES TO ELEVATE THEMSELVES TO A BETTER LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS...ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME.....AT THE SAME TIME WE ARE INTERESTED IN PROPAGATING OUR SCHOOL.. ALTERNATIVELY BEFORE JOINING THE GROUP , YOU MAY ADVISE THEM TO GO THRU THE BLOG AND IN CASE THEY ARE INTERESTED THEY CAN JOIN THE GROUP.... WE ARE NOT ANY POLITICAL PARTY ENGAGED IN MEMBERSHIP DRIVE... SO KINDLY KEEP THIS IN MIND BEFORE INTRODUCING NEW MEMBERS..............LORD'S GRACE..

SANTOSH THATI WAS REQUESTING ME TO WISH BHARADWAJ RAMASWAMY SINCE TODAY IS HIS BIRTHDAY... HE SAID HE WILL BE HAPPY IF I WISH.... NICE BHARADWAJ U HAVE GOT A SPOKES PERSON TO RECOMMEND YOUR CASE.... IJUST COULD NOT STOP LAUGHING AT SANTOSH THATI.....

WHEN ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY OR MARRIAGE DAY OR ANY OTHER GOOD DAY, SEEK PERSONALLY THROUGH A MESSAGE, THE BLESSINGS OF MASTER AND DONT EXPECT THE MASTER TO SEE THE FACE BOOK REMINDER AND WISH YOU ON HIS OWN.... IN A GURUKULAM YOU HAVE TO GO THE MASTER WITH FOLDED HANDS AND BOWING YOUR HEAD FOR BLESSINGS.... IN CASE YOU EXPECT SUCH A THING THERE IS SOME THING GROSSLY WRONG WITH YOU ....IN SUCH A CASE YOUR CLAIMING TO BE A DISCIPLE IS JUST FALSIFIED.... MASTER DOES NOT OBSERVE DIPLOMACIES AND NICETIES.....

WE CANT DO ANYTHING WITHOUT REASONING.... WE CANT DO ANYTHING WITHOUT GIVING ANY EXPLANATION... WE HAVE TO ATTACH A MEANING TO ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.... THE REASONING/EXPLANATION/MEANING WILL DEPEND ON THE WAY WE HAVE PERCEIVED THE SUBJECT MATTER.... AND ADDING FUEL TO THE FIRE IS THE EGO AND INTELLECT... A LITTLE BIT OF IMAGINATION TOO.... SUPPOSE WE CANT REASON OUT, WE CANT GIVE AN EXPLANATION, WE CANT CONCOCT A MEANING DESPITE THE INTELLECT, ANALYSIS, THE EGO GETS HURT.... WE CANT IMAGINE THERE CAN BE SOMETHING WITHOUT A MEANING...THEN THE EGO PROMPTS US TO SAY, THIS IS JUST ABSURD.... THE MASTER LOVES THIS ABSURDITY.... THE MASTER LOVES THIS MEANINGLESSNESS.... THE MASTER CALLS IT 'GOD' WHO IS BEYOND ALL REASONING, BEYOND ALL EXPLANATION, BEYOND ALL MEANING, BEYOND EGO AND HUMAN INTELLECT.... TO REALISE THIS ONE NEEDS LORD'S MERCY AND GRACE.....

ONCE A PERSON FEELS HE KNOWS EVERY THING, HE LOOKS LIKE A CORPSE TO ME FOR HE IS DEAD... NO LONGER HE CAN WONDER AT THE BEAUTY OF LIFE..

WHEN YOU SIMPLY ENJOY GIVING I CALL IT AS ' UNCONDITIONAL LOVE'... I SEE GOD IN U...

HE... GOD CREATED MAN FIRST... 
ME....YEAH U R RIGHT.... WE ALWAYS MAKE A ROUGH DRAFT BEFORE MAKING THE FINAL MASTER PIECE.........lol

OFCOURSE THE TONGUE IS ONLY 3 INCHES....ITS A WONDER IT CAN KILL A MAN 6 FEET HIGH....

DONT INDULGE IN LOOSE TALKS..... SO MANY PEOPLE MAY BE ACCUSING AND USING FOUL LANGUAGE AGAINST OTHERS.... SOME TIMES EVEN PEOPLE IN THE HIGH PLACES WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE VERY LEARNED MAKE STATEMENTS UNCONSCIOUSLY...NO HARD FEELINGS AGAINST THEM TOO.... WE ARE JUST SUPPOSED TO OBSERVE THE DRAMA.... LORD HAS DECIDED TO UNFOLD SOME TRUTH BEFORE YOU... JUST BE ALERT.... BE CONSCIOUS ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND THE SITUATION.... WE CAN LEARN... THROUGH SOME WE LEARN 'HOW TO BEHAVE' AND THROUGH SOME WE LEARN 'HOW NOT TO BEHAVE'.... TO TEACH 'HOW TO BEHAVE' IS EASY BUT TO TEACH 'HOW NOT TO BEHAVE' IS DIFFICULT..... SO SILENTLY OBSERVE... YOU WILL LEARN SO MANY THINGS... LORD'S WAYS ARE MYSTERIOUS AND CANNOT BE DECIPHERED.... TO UNDERSTAND LORD'S DESIGN IS IMPOSSIBLE... AT BEST WE CAN ONLY WONDER...FAITH AND FAITH ALONE CAN BRING YOU CLOSER TO GOD.... EVEN WHEN A LEARNED PERSON SAYS SOME THING OBSERVE.... DONT TAKE SIDES AND START SUPPORTING HIM.... THEN YOU MAY NOT BE IN A POSITION TO ENJOY THE GLIMPSE OF TRUTH.... FURTHER WE ARE NOT SO GREAT TO JOIN IN THE ROW OF COMMENTS ON SAINTS.... SAINTS ARE JUST AVATARS OF GOD... THEY ARE CALLED 'AVADHOOTAS'.... AN 'AVADHOOTA' IS NOT A CONVENTIONAL SAINT... HE HAS NO RULES OR REGULATIONS.... TO HIM EVERYTHING IS ONE AND HIS WAYS ARE IMPARTIAL... HE IS GOD HIMSELF.....................LORD'S GRACE...

NEVER CUT THE COCOON IN THE NAME OF COMPASSION...THE STRUGGLE WHICH A BUTTERFLY UNDERGOES TO COME OUT HELPS IT TO FLY... IN CASE U CUT THE COCOON, THE BUTTERFLY CAN NEVER FLY....

NOW A DAYS YOUNGSTERS DONT KNOW THE DEPTH OF VALUE OF 'LOVE'... THEY JUST MERELY AND MECHANICALLY KEEP REPEATING THE WORD 'LOVE U, LOVE U, LOVE U'.....OR SOME SYMBOLS OF LOVE...THESE THEMSELVES DONT BECOME LOVE BUT REPEATING AND CHANTING IT KEEPS THE SAYER'S MIND AT PEACE AND HENCE THE MIND BELIEVES IT TO BE LOVE...THIS IS THE DANGER OF MIND GAME LEADING TO DEPRESSION AT TIME OF REALISING THE REALITY...SO BE AWARE..

THEY BOTH LOVED...NOW THEY ARE WAITING FOR THEIR ELDERS PERMISSION TO GET MARRIED.... THE BOY'S SIDE SAID 'OK'.... THE GIRL'S SIDE IS DILLY DALLYING.....
SHE....GURUJI, UNLESS MY PARENTS AGREE TO OUR MARRIAGE, I AM NOT GOING TO MARRY......
ME...DID YOU TAKE THE PERMISSION OF YOUR PARENTS WHEN YOU STARTED LOVING?
SHE...NO....
ME....THEN WHY DO U WANT THEIR APPROVAL NOW , WHEN YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN PERMISSION WHEN U STARTED LOVING.....
SHE...NO GURUJI....MY PARENTS HAVE DONE ALOT FOR ME IN MY LIFE...BUT STILL I NEED HIM ALSO....
ME...IF UR PARENTS HAVE DONE SO MUCH, YOU SHOULD HAVE TAKEN PERMISSION BEFORE YOU VENTURED IN TO LOVE.... I FEEL YOU ARE SCARED OF POST MARRIAGE EVENTS....HENCE U WANT THE FAMILY APPROVAL NOW....U MAY FEEL SECURED IF THE APPROVAL IS GIVEN.... I FEEL SOME WHERE YOU HAVE CROSSED THE LINE AND NOT FAIR....INTROSPECT.....

LOVE IS NOT FOR COWARDS.....

SOME HOW THE KIDS WHOM I HAVE COME ACROSS THESE DAYS TREAT THE SUBJECT MATTER OF 'LOVE' AS A VERY SERIOUS SUBJECT.... THEY GET STRESSED OUT IN THE PROCESS.... THEY GET TENSED.... THEY LOOK DULL AT TIMES.... ON A CLOSER LOOK I FOUND THAT SUCH CASES MORE SUFFER DUE TO 'POSSESSIVENESS' THOUGH IT IS LABELLED EXTERNALLY AS 'LOVE'... ITS POSSIBLE TO POSSESS A HOUSE, A CAR, SOME MONEY BUT NOT A PERSON... AT BEST A PERSON CAN BE LOVED WITH GRACE UNCONDITIONALLY.... THE CONDITIONALITY IN LOVE TURNS IT IN TO POSSESSIVENESS.... LOVE IS FREEDOM AND NOT SLAVERY...POSSESSIVENESS ALWAYS COMES WITH A COUSIN CALLED JEALOUSY...............

A GIRL AND A BOY ARE IN LOVE FOR SIX YEARS.... BUT THE GIRL'S PRICED POSSESSION IS 'EGO'..... THEY GO TO HOTEL....THEY EAT CHAT, PAV BHAJI ETC., THE GIRL HAS INFORMED AT HER HOME AND THEY HAVE AGREED...IT SEEMS THE BOY'S PARENTS DONT KNOW YET... THE GIRL APPROACHED THE BOY FOR INFORMING PARENTS AND GETTING MARRIED...BOY SAYS THERE ARE PROBLEMS IN AREA OF FINANCE AND HE CANT INFORM THEM AND TAKE A DECISION..... VERY FUNNY KIDS.... IS THIS STILL WORKABLE?

EGO AND LOVE CANT COEXIST 
EGO IS THE LANGUAGE OF AN ARROGANT MIND....
LOVE IS THE LANGUAGE OF AN INNOCENT HEART...

THE OTHER DAY I SAW A BOOK IN A BOOK STORE.... IT WAS WRITTEN 'THE ART OF LOVE MAKING'....
I COULD NOT CONTROL MY LAUGHTER...
VERY FUNNY WORLD.......LOL

ONE NEEDS TO BECOME UTTERLY NAKED IN ONE'S THOUGHTS AND SURRENDER AT THE FEET OF LORD UNCONDITIONALLY FOR THE MIRACLE OF ' MERGER' TO HAPPEN WITH THE LORD....

YOU ALWAYS HAVE A RIGHT TO FEEL, WHAT YOU WANT TO FEEL, THE WAY YOU WANT TO FEEL.... THE FEELINGS MAY BE RECIPROCATED OR MAY BE REJECTED.... SINCE THE FEELING ALWAYS IS BACKED BY EXPECTATION, WHEN NOT REJECTED MAY LEAD TO DISAPPOINTMENT....




MYSTERIES ARE NOT FOR THOSE WHO QUESTION..... MYSTERIES ARE ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO WONDER.... CERTAINLY THOSE WHO WONDER CANT ESCAPE MYSTERY AT ANY POINT.... IT SYNCHRONISES WITH EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE AND YOU WILL STAND CONNECTED WITH GOD ALWAYS.................

WHEN YOU STOP JUDGING YOUR ACTIONS, YOU WILL ALSO STOP JUDGING OTHERS.....BE LESS OF A JUDGE AND YOU WILL START WITNESSING....ONCE YOU START WITNESSING, TRUTH AND JOY MOVES TOWARDS YOU....

HE.....GURUJI MY CHILDREN DONT TELL ME ANYTHING....
ME...IT MEANS YOUR CHILDREN ARE GROWING UP, WHEN THEY STOP ASKING YOU FROM WHERE YOU ARE COMING AND REFUSE TO TELL YOU WHERE THEY ARE GOING....
U MUST BE DELIGHTED THAT THEY ARE ON THE ROAD TO MATURITY....

I AM INCONSISTENT...
I DONT BELIEVE IN FUTURE AND HENCE NO PROMISES
I AM STILL GROWING...

YESTERDAY WHEN I WAS WALKING ON THE ROAD I CHANCED TO SEE ONE DISCIPLE ON ROAD....
HE...APPA...PRANAMS....
AFTER SOME DISTANCE...ONE MORE....
SHE...AMMA....PRANAMS...
STILL DOWN THE LANE...ONE MORE...
SHE...APPA...PRANAMS...
AT A STREET CORNER ONE MORE...
HE...AMMAE PRANAMS....
WHEN I WAS SITTING IN A SHOP IN RAMGOPALPET, SOME ONE WALKED IN....
SHE ...AMMA PRANAMS.....
I LITERALLY GOT CONFUSED.....I JUST RUSHED HOME TO VERIFY WITH MY PEOPLE........................
..........ROFL......

THE SECRET OF HAPPINESS IS U HV TO REALISE THERE IS NOTHING TO ACHIEVE OR CONQUER...ACHIEVEMENT OR PERFORMANCE OR TARGET IS JUST ANOTHER EGO TRIP..THEY ARE ALL DRIVEN BY AMBITION... AMBITION IS HONED BY THE AGGRESSIVENESS AND DRIVE..ONCE U R DRIVEN BY AMBITION, NOTHING ELSE COMES TO UR MIND OTHER THAN THAT... LOVE ,COMPASSION ,MERCY , CARE, SERVICE , UNDERSTANDING TAKES A BACK SEAT.. AN AMBITIOUS PERSON IS DRIVEN BY THE MADNESS OF THE SUBJECT OF ACHIEVEMENT AND PERFORMANCE... SUCH A PERSON WILL BE IMBALANCED.. PASSION FOR WORK IS GOOD, BUT SHOULD BE WITHOUT EXPECTATIONS... THATS WHY VERY AMBITIOUS PEOPLE WITH FULL OF INTELLECT IS ALWAYS FEELS STRESSED... AMBITION AND PEACE DONT GO HAND IN HAND... A MAN WHO HAS LOST PEACE NEVER ARRIVES AND STAGNATES... IN SUCH SITUATION HIS PERVERSION REFUSES TO ACKNOWLEDGE OR APPRECIATE ANY ONE OR ANY GOOD ACT.. THEY TEND TO BE IN A DREAM WORLD COUNTING CHICKENS BEFORE THEY HATCH... THE SPIRIT INSIDE THEM DECEPTIVELY HIDES AND THEY ONLY EXPERIENCE DARKNESS WHICH IS SHEER IGNORANCE...

HE...GURUJI, WHY U DIDNT TURN UP AT GURU POORNIMA FUNCTIONS?
ME...OH THATS UR PROBLEM? U LOOK SO DULL...I AM GOING TO CHEER U UP... I WAS BUSY PARTYING WITH FOUR LOVELY VILLAGE BELLY CHIKS IN GOA...I CELEBRATED ' GOA POORNIMA'...

SOME WERE WORRIED
SOME WERE CURIOUS
SOME FELT MISSED
SOME SAID THERE MUST B A REASON
SOME SAID GURUJI GONE TO FOREST
TOO MUCH OF GUESSING...
TOO MUCH OF IMAGINATION...
I TOO JOKED AS ENJOYING 'GOA POORNIMA'...
THE TRUTH IS....
ON 9TH ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL FOR A CONDITION...
A MINOR SURGERY ON THE GURU POORNIMA DAY 12TH JULY....
JUST BACK HOME DISCHARGED TODAY THE 16TH JULY...
LORDS GRACE....

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING...
YESTERDAY'S SINNER IS TODAY'S SAINT....

IN SHOPPING MALLS WE SIMPLY GO AND PURCHASE.... HE WOULD HAVE JACKED THE PRICE ABOVE COST BY 150% AND GIVE A DISCOUNT OF 50%.... WE WILL GLADLY PURCHASE....ONLY 50% DISCOUNT COMES IN TO OUR MIND.....WE ARE BLISSFULLY UNAWARE OF THE HIDDEN ABOVE COST OF 150%..... WHEN WE GO TO MONDA MARKET OR WHEN WE PURCHASE SOME VEGETABLE FROM THE ROAD SIDE BHANDAR, WE WILL BE NEGOTIATING THE PRICE...WE WILL BE BARGAINING..... THIS IS NOT ONLY STUPID BUT SHOWS HOW HEARTLESS WE ARE... DONT DO THIS... THOSE PEOPLE LIVE ON THEIR MEAGRE EARNINGS... BE GENEROUS ESPECIALLY WITH THE POOR AND NEEDY, FOR GOD REALLY LIVES IN THEM...

SHE....GURUJI, NO ONE IN YOUR GROUP SEEMS TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT YOU....
ME...WHEN I MYSELF DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ME, OTHERS KNOWING ABOUT ME IS IMPOSSIBLE.......LOL

A JOKE.....
HE SAW A NAKED MAN RUNNING DOWN HIS ROAD...
HE....WHY ARE YOU RUNNING NAKED?
THE MAN.... DID NOT EXPECT THAT YOU WILL BE BACK SO SOON HOME............................ROFL...

IN INDIA, WHEN YOU DRIVE ON A BRIDGE, PLEASE REMEMBER IT WAS BUILT BY THE LOWEST BIDDER..............................LOL

HE....GURUJI, YESTERDAY I WAS FEELING LAZY TO GO TO OFFICE SINCE IT WAS MONDAY....
ME...OH YOU HAD PMS?
HE...GURUJI, IAM NOT A GIRL TO HAVE PRE MENSTRUAL SYNDROME..
ME....LOL...I MEANT PREMATURE MONDAY SYNDROME..............LOL

PHARMACIST TO CUSTOMER....
TO BUY ANTI DEPRESSANT PILLS SIR, YOU NEED A PROPER PRESCRIPTION....SIMPLY SHOWING THE PICTURE OF YOUR WIFE IS NOT ENOUGH......................ROFL....

HE.....PLEASE BLESS ME...I HAVE APPLIED FOR AN ADMIN JOB WHICH HERE NORMALLY IS GIVEN TO LADIES GURUJI....
ME...LORDS GRACE...OUR PRAYERS....WHY NOT A SEX CHANGE OPERATION?..........LOL

THE QUESTION OF CHANCES OFFERED BECOMES REDUNDANT SINCE THE LIFE ITSELF IS CHOICELESS..

SHE...GURUJI, I AM DOING SIRASASANA EVERY DAY....
ME.....OH GREAT...I KNOW WHY YOU ARE DOING?
SHE .....WHY?
ME....U ARE DOING THIS PENANCE TO KEEP YOUR NOTORIOUS FOUL MOUTHED BROTHER AWAY FROM U....
SHE....NO GURUJI...I AM DOING IT TO GET RELIEF FROM THYROID PROBLEM.....................LOL

HE....GURUJI, TODAY IS TOLI EKADASI AND I AM FASTING....WHAT SPECIAL FROM YOUR SIDE....
ME....OH ITS TOLI EKADASI?....U R FASTING.....THEN I WILL BE FEASTING.............................LOL

SINCE MIND IS IN TO COMPARISON, WHATEVER CONCEIVED BY IT IS RELATIVE AND LIMITED..............................HENCE IT IS FALSE...

HOW SO EVER CLOSE UR FRIENDS MAY BE OR RELATIVES MAY BE, INFORM THEM BEFORE GOING TO THEIR PLACE...DONT JUST BARGE IN... ITS NOT FAIR... U WILL BE INTRUDING IN TO THEIR PRIVACY...SIMILARLY DIPLOMATICALLY CONVEY TO YOUR RELATIVES AND FRIENDS NOT TO JUST BARGE IN TO YOUR PLACE WITHOUT PRIOR INFORMATION....RESPECT OTHERS PRIVACY AND MAKE OTHERS TO KNOW THAT U TOO HAVE A PRIVATE LIFE... DONT ALLOW PEOPLE TO TAKE YOU FOR GRANTED AND YOU DONT TAKE OTHERS FOR GRANTED... THIS WILL ENSURE HARMONY IN RELATIONSHIP AND ALSO GIVE YOU AND OTHERS TO ENJOY THEIR OWN PRIVATE TIME AND YOUR OWN PRIVATE TIME...

NOW A DAYS MANY AMONG US ARE LOOSE-TONGUED.... BE ALERT IN PASSING ON ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU... FURTHER PEOPLE ARE VERY CURIOUS TO KNOW ABOUT YOU... DONT DIVULGE... JUST FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR CURIOSITY, YOU CANNOT PASS ON PERSONAL INFORMATION AND KEEP THEM ENTERTAINED.... IN OFFICE OR BUSINESS DONT DISCUSS ANYTHING ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL LIFE.... OFFICE IS MORE A HEAD ORIENTED PLACE AND NOTHING OF THE HEART CAN BE DISCUSSED.... THERE IS NO POINT IN REPENTING AT A LATER DATE..... BE WARM.... BE COURTEOUS... BE GENTLE... BE SMILING... BUT DONT ALLOW OTHERS TO TAKE YOU FOR GRANTED... WHEN THEY ASK ANYTHING PERSONAL, JUST REFUSE TO DIVULGE WITH A SMILE.... BEING CANDID AND DIPLOMATIC IS NOT ONLY IN OFFICIAL MATTERS, BUT YOU HAVE TO APPLY IT IN CASE OF PERSONAL MATTERS TOO WHEN IT COMES TO A WRONG SOURCE..... SO BE ALERT NOT TO MAKE YOUR PERSONAL MATTERS PUBLIC......................

Golden Words of HH Sri VV Sridhar Guruji 


S A R V A T H O M U K H A M
-------------------------------

THE LORD IS OMNIPOTENT.... THE BEAUTY IS HE IS EVERYWHERE... THE WONDER IS HE IS THE REAL FACE OF THIS JAGAT...ENTIRE CREATION... HE IS IN EVERY FORM...HE IS IN EVERY ASPECT....WHEN HIRANYA KASIPU SAW SRI HARI, HE SAW THE ENTIRE CREATION INCLUDING HIMSELF..HE COULD VISUALISE ALL THE PERSONALITIES IN NRUSIMHA...HE COULD SEE EVERY FACET OF LIFE IN HIM...BY LOOKING AT THE FACES HE COULD REALISE THE CONSCIOUSNESS AT ALL LEVELS OF BODY, MIND AND SOUL...THE LORD IN THE FORM OF NRUSIMHA REVEALED HIMSELF TO HIRANYA KASIPU...THE EGO OF HIRANYA KASIPU GOT DISSIPATED IN NO TIME... HE WAS AGHAST AT IT... HE GOT MESMERISED AND DROPPED THE GADA... HE THOUGHT NO POINT IN FURTHER CONFRONTING NRUSIMHA... HE WAS ALL LONG WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT AMND THE MOMENT HAS ARRIVED... HE JUST GAVE IN TO LORD...LORDS GRACE,,,,
MAHA VISHNU HAD TO IMPORT ANGER TO KILL HIRANYAKASIPU.... YEAH IN ONE WAY THATS LORD'S COMPASSION TO GIVE MUKTHI TO HIM... SOMETIMES IN DAY TO DAY LIFE WISE MEN GYANIS DO THE SAME THING...THEY IMPORT ANGER AND POSE AS THOUGH THEY ARE ANGRY....THEY R CONSCIOUSLY AWARE OF THE SITUATION AND NEED WHEREAS OUR ANGER STEMS FROM THE UNCONSCIOUS....THEY DONT FEEL GUILTY AFTER BEING ANGRY FOR THEY KNOW THEY R NOT THE DOERS....BUT IN CASE OF UNCONSCIOUS MIND WE FEEL GUILTY ONCE THE ANGER SUBSIDES....
HIRANYA KASIPU WAS THE MOST FORTUNATE GUY TO BE ON THE LAP OF NRUSIMHA...LORD DID NOT EVEN TOUCH PRAHLADA...LORDS GRACE...
THE VERY PURPOSE OF NRUSIMHA AVATARA IS JUST DESTRUCTION OF EGO OF JIVA AT THE HANDS OF PARAMA.... THE DEMON HIRANYA KASHIPU WAS FULL OF EGO...HE WAS DEMONSTRATING HIS EGO AND POWER TO ALL ELEMENTS OF NATURE INCLUDING HIS SON 'PRAHLADA'..... THE UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE FORM OF NRUSIMHA WANTED TO TAME THE INDIVIDUAL CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE FORM OF HIRANYA KASHIPU...HENCE THE MANIFESTATION OF NRUSIMHA AVATARA... WHEN YOU GROW IN POWER TWO THINGS SHOULD HAPPEN.... ONE EGO SHOULD GO DOWN AND ONE NEEDS TO BECOME HUMBLE ...SECONDLY THE DESIRE SHOULD COME DOWN SO THAT POWER WILL ENABLE THE PERSON TO WORK FOR OTHERS SELFLESSLY...THESE TWO THINGS DIDNT HAPPEN IN CASE OF HIRANYA KASHIPU.... ONCE HE ATTAINED POWER HIS EGO GREW LEAPS AND BOUNDS....NEXT HIS DESIRE TO CONQUER EVERYTHING IN THE COSMOS INCLUDING THE SUPREME.... THSI LEAD TO HIS DOWNFALL.... SO WHEN YOU GROW IN POWER TUNE DOWN YOUR EGO AND DESIRE LEVELS...

'GANDA BERUNDA NRUSIMHA'
ONE DAY MAHARISHI RAJAR TOLD ME THAT HE WILL SHOW ME SOMETHING VERY INTERESTING....WE WERE WALKING FOR ALMOST TWO DAYS...SO WE HALTED ON THE BANKS OF A SMALL RIVULET...BOTH OF US TOOK BATH AND WERE JUST SITTING BELOW A TREE ON THE BANKS.... IT WAS ALMOST 5 PMAND THE SUN WAS SETTING EARLY DUE TO MOUNTAINS BEING ALL ROUND...WE HEARD A VERY PECULIAR SOUND.... SUCH A SOUND I HAVE NEVER HEARD IN MY LIFE TILL THEN....I LOOKED AT MAHARISHI RAJAR....HE WAS CALM, SERENE AND HIS USUAL SMILE....
MAHARISHI....I THOUGHT WE HAVE TO TRAVEL A LITTLE MORE...BUT 'RAJALI' HAS BEEN KIND ENOUGH TO ARRIVE WHERE WE ARE...
ME....WHO IS THAT MASTER.....RAJALI?
MAHARISHI...ITS A RARE FORM OF MYTHOLOGICAL BIRD....ONLY THE FAITHFUL CAN SEE IT.....THOSE DAYS BRAHMINS HAD A LOT OF FEAR OF THIS BIRD....IN CASE ANY BRAHMIN KEEPS TELLING LIES, THIS BIRD SWOOPS DOWN ON THEM AND IT CARRIES AWAY.... THIS BIRD WILL HAVE TWO HEADS....U DO ONE THING STAND IN THE RIVULET HIP DEEP AND MEDITATE ON 'GANDA BERUNDA NRUSIMHA'.....WHEN U ARE FULL WITH HIM, OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE'....
SO I STOOD IN THE RIVULET AND MEDIATED ON THE LORD......AS I OPENED MY EYES I SAW A BEAUTIFUL BIRD WITH TWO HEADS, A VERY LARGE BIG BODY, FULLY WHITE IN COLOUR, WITH THE EYES OF A PEA COCK AND A VERY LONG BEAK.....IT HAD VERY STRONG LEGS AND WAS SITTING ON TOP OF A TREE ON THE OPPOSITE BANK......IT REMAINED MORE THAN 5 MINUTES AND IT SOUNDED ONCE MORE AND FLEW OFF IN TO THE SKY.....
I WAS IN TEARS AND I PROSTRATED MY MASTER FOR HAVING BLESSED ME TO VISUALISE RAJALI...A FORM OF 'GANDA BERUNDA NRUSIMHA'......
LORDS WILL....MERCY AND GRACE.....

*****************************************************************************************



This is GANDA BERUNDA PAKSHI SIMHAM ....
IT IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FORMS OF NRUSIMHA....ITS CALLED GANDA BERUNDA PAKSHI NRUSIMHA SWAMY....IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE LORD REVEALED THIS FORM AT THE LAST STAGES OF HIS CONFRONTATION WITH HIRANYAKASIPU....IN MANTRA RAJA PADA MOOLA MANTRAM THERE IS A TERM CALLED SARVATOMUKHAM....WHEN HIRANYAKASHIPU SAW NRUSIMHA HE COULD SEE MANY FACES...
1...LION 2. TIGER 3. MONKEY..4...BEAR...5..BOAR..6..GARUDA..7 HORSE...8..CROCODILE....
8 HEADS AND 32 HANDS....32 HANDS DEPICT THE ANUSHTUPA MOOLA MANTRA/MANTRA RAJA PADA MOOLA MANTRA....HAS 32 SYLLABLES EACH SYLLABLE/BIJA AKSHARA REPRESENTS 1,00,008 UPA AKSHARAS... HERE HIRANYAKASIPU COULD SEE THE LORD BOTH IN HIS HRIDAYA AND OUTSIDE AND HENCE THE SYMBOLIC REPRESENTATION OF TWO HEADS OF A BIRD...DEPICTING THE INNER AND OUTER...THE EGO SELF AND TRUE SELF...
IT IS BELIEVED IN SUM PARTS OF KERALA AND KARNATAKA BRAHMINS THOSE DAYS WILL NOT DO PUJA PUNASKARA IF THEY FEEL THEIR INNER IS NOT CLEAN THE RAJALI PAKSHI WHICH IS TWIN HEADED JUST SWOOPS DOWN FROM NOWHERE AND TAKES THEM AND LEAVES THEM IN PAATALA LOKA...HENCE WHEN THEIR THOUGHTS R IMPURE THEY NEVER DO ANY WORSHIP OR SACRIFICE...
THE LORD IN THIS FORM IS AN AGHORA MURTHY... A BEAUTY PAR EXCELLENCE...WHILE KILLING HIRANYAKASIPU HE GAVE THIS FORM OF DARSHAN TO HIM AND IT SEEMS HIRANYA KASHIPU WAS GIVEN THE AATMA GYANA BY SEEING THIS FORM...GARUDA WAS KIND ENUF TO GIVE HIRANYA KASHIPU THE CHARAMA SLOKAM OF NARASIMHA IN HIS EARS JUST BEFORE HIS DEATH...HENCE THE SHWETHA GARUDA CAN BE SEEN NEAR THE HEAD OF HIRANYA KASHIPU...ITS A VERY VERY RARE FORM OF LORD NRUSIMHA....

******************************************************************************************** 

BOMBAY SRINIVASAN......WHICH IS BETTER 'NARASIMHA' OR 'NRUSIMHA'....
ME...SRINIVASAN.....'NARASIMHA' MEANS 'HALF MAN, HALF LION'...
WHERE AS 'NRUSIMHA' .....'THE BEAUTIFUL LION....ANOTHER AVATARA OF THE LORD'.... THATS WHY IN MANTRA RAJA PADA MOOLA MANTRAM
' UGRAM VEERAM MAHAVISHNUM JWALANTHAM SARVATHOMUKHAM'
'NRUSIMHAM BEESHANAM BHADRAM MRTYUMRTYUM NAMAMYAHAM'....
(NRUSIMHAM), 'NRU' IS USED AND NOT 'NAR'.......'NRU' HAS MORE CONNOTATION OF THE LORD THAN 'NAR', WHICH SIMPLY MEANS HALF MAN HALF LION...'NRU' IS MORE DIVINE......'NAR' IS MORE HUMAN.....LORDS MERCY AND GRACE..,.

********************************************************************************************** 

THE AGHORA NRUSIMHA MANTRA....
'OM HREEM KSHRAUM, UGRAM VEERAM MAHA VISHNUM JWALANTHAM SARVATHOMUKHAM...SPHURA SPHURA, PRASPHURA PRASPHURA, GHORA GHORATHANA, THANOOROOPA, CHATA CHATA, PRACHATA PRACHATA, KAHA KAHA, VAMA VAMA, BANDAYA BHANDAYA, KKAADAYA KKAADAYA, NRUSIMHAM BHEESHANAM BHADRAM MRTYUMRTYUR NAMAMYAHAM SWAHA'....
THIS IS YET ANOTHER MANTRA OF LORD NRUSIMHA WHERE THE NRUSIMHA ANUSHTUP IS USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE AGHORA MANTRA.... THIS TOO BLESSES WITH AUSPICIOUSNESS... ALL THE EVILS STAND ANNHILATED... AND ITS STRONGLY BELIEVED THAT THE GOOD TRIUMPHS ON RECITING OF THE MANTRA....LORDS MERCY AND GRACE..

********************************************************************************************** 

AHOBILAM IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL PLACE.... A CELESTIAL PARADISE IN THIS WORLD WHICH HOUSES LORD NRUSIMHA IN 9 DIFFERENT POSTURES AND THE GRAND TEMPLE OF PRAHALADA VARADHAN....THESE FORESTS CONTAIN A LOT OF COSMIC ENERGY FORCES......IT IS BELIEVED THAT THESE DEVA ATMAS HAVE BEEN STAYING IN THESE RANGES FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS PRAYING TO THE LORD.... ONE GETS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE BLESSED WITHIN THE VICINITY OF THESE AKSHARAS....THE BLESSINGS OF THESE COSMIC ENERGY FORCES GIVE EVERY ONE AN OPPORTUNITY TO GROW IN ALL SPHERES OF LIFE INCLUDING THE SPIRITUAL FIELD.... GOOD HEALTH, WEALTH, VALOUR, PEACE, GOVERNANCE ETC., ARE A FEW OF THE ATTRIBUTES.... ONE UNLESS BLESSED CANNOT ENTER THIS KSHETRA OF AHOBILAM WITHOUT LORD LAKSHMI NRUSIMHA'S BLESSINGS AND GRACE......LET US PRAY TO AHOBILAVASA TO GRANT GOOD HEALTH WEALTH AND PEACE TO ONE AND ALL.....

*********************************************************************************************

AHOBILAM IS A BEAUTIFUL NAVA NRUSIMHA KSHETRAM....

A FEW YEARS BACK AT AHOBILAM......
HE.....GURUJI, I AM GOING TODAY TO JWALA....
ME....TODAY YAKSHA RAJAN IS EXPECTED TO BE ON THE WAY...SO GO AS A GROUP WITH A GUIDE....
HE....GURUJI, I HAVE GONE MANY TIMES, I KNOW THE ROUTE AND PLACE WELL..
AFTER 4 DAYS OF COMING BACK FROM YAGNAM, I RECEIVED A CALL FROM HIS WIFE THAT HER HUSBAND HAS NOT COME HOME....I SAID WAIT FOR 3 MORE DAYS....
AS I SUSPECTED HE LOST HIS WAY....LUCKY A GIANT EAGLE (GARUDA) WAS TRACKING HIM....A TRIBAL PICKED HIM UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FOREST AND GUIDED HIM BACK TO AHOBILAM...
ON RETURN HE CAME RUNNING TO ME...I SAID TO HIM GO BACK TO AHOBILAM....VISIT ALL THE NRUSIMHA'S WITH PROPER GUIDE....
HE....WHAT SHALL I OFFER TO LORD?
ME....PURCHASE 25 BLANKETS AND GIVE IT TO THE POOR WHO CANT AFFORD SINCE ITS COLD SEASON......LORD WILL BE PLEASED BY IT.....
THE GROUP GOT LOST AT UPPER AHOBILAM.....THEY WERE HELPLESS.....TWO VERY BIG EAGLES WERE CIRCLING HIGH UP IN THE SKY....THEY WERE ICCHADARIS..... THE FEMALE FLEW DOWN....TRANSFORMED IN TO A WOMAN....ESCORTED AND GUIDED THEM BACK.....
OH....A GREAT NEVER ENDING EXPEDITION ACROSS THE NALLAMALA FOREST LOST FOR THE GROUP....LORDS GRACE...

************************************************************************************************ 
WE WERE GOOD FRIENDS.....ONE DAY WE HAD GONE TO A MOVIE WITH HIM....PETER BLATTY'S 'THE EXORCIST' AT CASINO THEATER AT MADRAS (PRESENT DAY CHENNAI).... DURING ONE OF THE SCENES WHERE THE CHURCH FATHER WAS EXORCISING THE SPIRIT WHICH HAD ENTERED THE GIRL, I WHISPERED THE NRUSIMHA ANUSHTUPA MOOLA MANTRA IN HIS RIGHT EAR...AFTER THE MOVIE WAS OVER HE ASKED ME, WHAT WAS I SAYING IN HIS RIGHT EAR DURING THE MOVIE AND THAT HE COULD NOT UNDERSTAND... I WROTE THE MANTRA BEHIND THE CINEMA TICKET AND GAVE IT TO HIM AND ASKED HIM TO KEEP RECITING IT WHEN EVER POSSIBLE... I TOLD HIM TO KEEP THE PAPER SAFE.....
AFTER 22 YEARS OF THIS INCIDENT....
MY FRIEND ALONG WITH 3 OF HIS FRIENDS WERE DRIVING ON THE HIGH WAY IN THE DESERT OF ARIZONA IN WESTERN USA.... THE CAR SUDDENLY STOPPED.....IT HAD DEVELOPED SOME SNAG....ANOTHER CAR HAD COME AND THERE WAS ONLY A DRIVER.... THEY BOARDED THE CAR AS IT STOPPED... THEY STARTED TALKING TO THE DRIVER....SINCE IT WAS LATE EVENING, THEY COULD NOT SEE HIS FACE.....HE TOOK AN ALTERNATE ROUTE THAN THE ONE SUGGESTED BY THEM AND STOPPED SOME WHERE IN THE DARK... HE AND HIS FRIENDS GOT DOWN FROM THE CAR...AROUND 10 PEOPLE CARRYING FLAMING TORCHES SURROUNDED THEM AND TOOK THEM TO A NEARBY RANGE OF MOUNTAINS... THEY TOOK THEM DEEP INSIDE.... FINALLY MY FRIEND REALISED THAT THEY WERE 'VOODOO' PRACTITIONERS...'VOODOO' IS A BLACK MAGIC ART MORE PREVALENT IN SOME WESTERN COUNTRIES....MY FRIEND TREMBLED AND SLOWLY OPENED HIS PURSE AND TOOK OUT THE CINEMA TICKET WHERE BEHIND I HAD WRITTEN AND GIVEN HIM THE NRUSIMHA ANUSHTUPA MOOLA MANTRA.... HE IN A LOUD VOICE RECITED THE MANTRA..... THE CHIEF OF THE GROUP, SNATCHED THE CINEMA TICKET AND BURNT IT WITH A LIGHTER.... SUDDENLY VERY MIGHTY COBRAS, VIPERS, AND CRATES STARTED COMING OUT FROM NOWHERE AND STARTED ATTACKING THE GROUP.... MY FRIEND ALONG WITH HIS FRIENDS STARTED RUNNING OUT FROM THE PLACE AND REACHED TO PLACE OF SAFETY.... HE THEN CALLED ME AND INFORMED ME OF THE INCIDENT...
THIS IS THE POWER OF LORD LAKSHMI NRUSIMHA SWAMY AND THE MANTRA RAJA PADA MOOLA MANTRAM....

'UGRAM VEERAM MAHAVISHNUM JWALANTHAM SARVATHOMUKHAM
NRUSIMHAM BEESHANAM BADRAM MRTYUMRUTYUM NAMAMYAHAM'.....

PRAISE THE LORD....LORDS WILL MERCY AND GRACE...

*********************************************************************************************** 

I KNOW SOME WHERE DOWN SOUTH, THERE WAS AN OLD NRUSIMHA TEMPLE IN A VERY DILAPIDATED CONDITION.....THEY FORMED A COMMITTEE AND SLOWLY STARTED MOBILISING FUNDS AND REBUILT THE TEMPLE....NOW EXPERTS ARRIVED ON THE SCENE....EVERY EXPERT IS BUSY FANNING HIS OWN IDEA....FULL EGO WAR HAS BLOWN OUT.....ONE SIDE EXPERTS....ONE SIDE GOVERNMENT....ONE SIDE ASTROLOGERS.....ONE SIDE PRIESTS...ONE SIDE WELL WISHERS....ONE SIDE DONORS..... NOW RAJAGOPURAM CONSTRUCTION.....NOW LOTS OF FIGHT.......DURING ONE OF MY CONVERSATION WITH LORD, HE FEELS HE WAS MORE HAPPY UNDER THE DILAPIDATED STRUCTURE.....LORDS MERCY , WILL AND GRACE ALONE CAN SOLVE THIS....

Guruji's experiences 5

Golden words of HH Sri VV Sridhar Guruji

HE WAS TRYING FOR MY APPOINTMENT....IT TOOK 4 YEARS FOR ME TO FACILITATE HIM WITH AN APPOINTMENT FOR JUST 5 MINUTES...AT SHARP9.00 AM HE WAS PRESENT WITH HIS ENTIRE FAMILY....THREE BROTHERS, THREE SISTERS-IN-LAW, 2 SISTERS AND TWO BROTHERS-IN-LAW ALONG WITH THEIR KIDS... HE WAS BUSY INTRODUCING EVERY ONE WITH ME AND 5 MINUTES GOT OVER....I JUST GAVE THEM THE PRASADAM AND THEY WERE NOT LEAVING....I JUST SAID , I SHOULD NOT SEE YOU FOR MORE THAN 5 MINUTES AND THE QUOTA PROMISED IS OVER....
THEY...GURUJI, PLEASE ALLOW US ATLEAST 15 MINUTES....
ME....NO...PLEASE LEAVE....AN ELDERLY MAN, THE FATHER-IN-LAW OF THE SECOND BROTHER WHOM YOU LOCKED AT HOME, IS JUST SUFFERING NOW A HEART ATTACK AND NEEDS IMMEDIATE ATTENTION.....
THEY ALL VANISHED.... THE ELDERLY MAN PASSED AWAY....
NOW A BIG DISCUSSION FOLLOWED....
 WHEN THE MASTER KNEW THAT SUCH A THING IS GOING TO HAPPEN, WHY HE DIDNT TAKE STEPS TO PREVENT IT IN THE FIRST PLACE?
WHEN THE MASTER KNEW THAT SUCH A THING HAPPENS HE COULD HAVE AT LEAST GIVEN A DIFFERENT DATE, MORE SO WHEN SOMETHING OF THIS NATURE IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN?
WHY DID HE MAKE US WAIT FOR FOUR YEARS TO GIVE AN APPOINTMENT? 
WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SAYING THAT 'I SHOULD NOT SEE YOU FOR MORE THAN 5 MINUTES' ?
WHAT IF HE COULD HAVE GIVEN US ANOTHER 15 MINUTES TO INTERACT? ANY HOW THE OLD MAN IS DYING....5 MINS OR 15 MINS SHOULD NOT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE...
WHEN I HAD GONE SOME WHERE, I ACCIDENTALLY MET THE GROUP....THESE QUESTIONS WERE POSED TO ME....
I JUST BURST IN TO LAUGHTER AND SAID...'FOOD IS VERY TASTY HERE....I AM GOING IN TO THE DINING BUFFET SESSION....DONT MISS THE VEG MANCHURIAN, KADAI PANNER AND JEERA PULAO...THE VEG KEBAB AND SPRING ROLLS CAN BE ADDITIONAL STARTERS...I HAVE NOT TASTED DAL MAKHANI...THIS TIME I WANT TO TRY....THE BASUNDI SWEET IS A CLASS.... JUST PACK OFF WITH CUSTARD AND MANGO LASSI...THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO TALK ABOUT THE PAST OR ANALYSE...WE HAVE COME FOR A MARRIAGE...THIS IS THE TIME TO REJOICE'....
I JUST LEFT THE PLACE AND THE AROMA OF THE KITCHEN AND DINING WAS TRANSPORTING ME TO A DIFFERENT WORLD...LORDS GRACE...


THIS HAPPENED SOME 8 YEARS AGO.... 
I WAS INVITED TO A MARRIAGE.... I HAD GONE THERE... I WAS LITERALLY DRESSED IN RAGS..... I WAS SENT AWAY... 
NOW I DRESSED UP WELL.... WORE A FEW RINGS WHICH I USED FOR PRAYOGAMS..... I WAS WELCOMED.....
BRIDE GROOM'S FATHER....PLEASE COME GURUJI....
I SMILED AND SAID.... I CAME IN RAGS... I WAS SENT OUT... NOW I HAVE COME WELL DRESSED AND WITH ORNAMENTS ETC., I AM BEING RESPECTED...SO I KNOW YOU GIVE IMPORTANCE TO DRESS AND ORNAMENTS THAN TO ME......
BEFORE ALL IN THE MARRIAGE HALL I REMOVED MY SHIRT, PATTU DHOTHI AND ALL THE ORNAMENTS AND GAVE IT TO BRIDE GROOM'S FATHER.... HE WAS LITERALLY TREMBLING...
I LEFT THE MARRIAGE HALL.... CAME OUT AND TOOK THE RAGS WHICH I KEPT SOME WHERE NEAR BY , WORE IT AND WALKED AWAY...
VERY FUNNY PEOPLE INDEED....

I HAD SENT A CONDOLENCE SMS TO SOME ONE WHOSE MOTHER HAD PASSED AWAY AT A RIPE AGE OF 87.... MY HANDLING OF THE CELL PHONE IS PRETTY BAD....INSTEAD OF SENDING A SOBBING SMILEY, I MISTAKENLY PRESSED THE HAPPY ONE....
HE...WHAT GURUJI U HAVE SENT A SMILING SMILEY AS CONDOLENCE MESSAGE...
ME...HEY...THATS YOU MOM SMILING FROM HEAVEN....
HE...IS THAT SO GURUJI...I AM HAPPY....
I PRAYED...'OH MY LORD PLEASE MAKE THE SOUL SMILE'....
I COULD VISUALISE HIS MOTHER'S SOUL SMILING.... I FELT RELIEVED AND HAPPY..... THOUGH I COMMITTED A MISTAKE, LORD TOOK IT ON HIS HEAD AND MADE MY STATEMENT COME TRUE...
DURING ONE OF MY CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD....
ME...GOD...YOU HAVE BEEN SO KIND DESPITE MY COMMITTING A MISTAKE...
LORD SMILED BACK AND SAID....'SHOULD I REMIND YOU YOUR STATEMENT.....I AM NOT THE DOER....LORD IS THE DOER'......
LORDS GRACE...


THE HEAD IS THE BRAHMIN...
THE CHEST AND THE TOP PORTION OF THE BODY BELOW TORSO IS THE KSHATRIYA....
THE LOWER PORTION HOUSING THE STOMACH LIVER PANCREAS KIDNEYS IS THE VYSYA....
THE LOWEST PORTION FROM ABDOMEN DOWN TO FEET IS SUDRA...
WHEN YOU PROSTRATE GOD OR GURU OR AN ELDER, IT IS THE HEAD PORTION (THE BRAHMIN) WHO BOWS DOWN AND PUTS HIS HEAD AT THE FEET ( THE SUDRA) OF GOD OR GURU OR THE ELDER.....
SURRENDER THE EGOISTIC HEAD OF BRAHMIN AT THE FEET OF THE SUDRA OF THE GOD OR GURU OR ELDER...WHEN YOU GET REMEMBER THAT YOU HAVE SURRENDERED YOUR EGO AND THAT YOU ARE EGOLESS...
DO YOU PROSTRATE THIS WAY?

WE GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO PERFORM 'UDAYA ASTHAMANA SEVA' ONCE A YEAR TO LORD BALAJI.... THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE SEVA IS WE GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO SIT IN FRONT OF GOD JUST 10 FEET AWAY FOR 50 MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.... ALL PRAYERS ARE OFFERED AND THE BOGA SRINIVASA MURTHY ABISHEGAM IS PERFORMED....ITS JUST SUPERB AND MARVELLOUS.... AFTER RECITATION OF MANTRAS, VEDAS, PRABHANDAM, THE LORD IS DECORATED WITH BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS AND IT IS 'THOMALA SEVA'... THEERTHA PRASADAM AND SATAGOPAM IS BESTOWED WITH A PATTU SHAWL AND BLOUSE PIECE....AFTER THAT U ARE ALLOWED THE ENTIRE DAY TO PARTICIPATE IN ALL THE SEVAS INCLUDING KALYANA UTSAVAM, VASTHOTHSAVAM, SAHASRA DEEPALANKARA...UP TO EKANTHA SEVA.... WE ALSO VISTED KANIPAKKAM MAHA GANAPATHY, PAATALA VINAYAKA AT PATHAGIRI, SRI KALYANA VENKATESHWARA, AMMAVARU AT TIRUCHANUR AND KAILA THEERTHAM......LORDS GRACE...WE COULD THOROUGHLY ENJOY...

I DID NOT COME HERE TO GIVE YOU COMMANDMENTS....
I DID NOT COME HERE TO SAY 'DO THIS' OR 'DO THAT'....
I DID NOT COME HERE TO PREACH ETHICS TO YOU....
WITH HIS GRACE, I JUST CAME TO LISTEN TO THE MUSIC AND VOICE OF GOD...
IN THE PROCESS HE MADE ME TO ENJOY LIFE, CELEBRATE AND DANCE WITH HIM.....
DANCE WITH THE LORD...LIFE IS A CELEBRATION....

SOME ONE HAD BOOKED TICKETS TO ATTEND MY BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS AT HYDERABAD ON 31ST AUGUST 20144...SHE PRESENTLY LIVES IN BENGALURU.. SUDDENLY SHE HAS COME ACROSS AN INVITATION FOR MY BIRTHDAY FUNCTION AT CHENNAI ON 30 AUGUST 2014... SHE IS ASKING ME WHETHER SHE CAN CANCEL HER TICKET TO HYDERABAD SO THAT SHE CAN BOOK A TICKET TO CHENNAI FOR 30TH AUGUST... I COULD CONTROL MY LAUGHTER ON SEEING HER MSG TO ME ON MY CELL... I JUST BURST IN TO LAUGHTER... LORD SO WONDERFUL R YOUR WAYS... CIRCUS ALL AROUND ME... YOUR GRACE...

SAINT....CULTIVATE YOUR CHARACTER.....
ME.....(BOUTS OF LAUGHTER).....HEY BHAGAWAN, THE SEED OF WEED IS ALREADY SOWN.... THE SPRING TIME CAME AND IT SPROUTED.... IT HAS NOW BECOME A TREE.... THE SEED ITSELF WAS NOT MY CHOICE.... WHAT IS THERE TO FURTHER CULTIVATE... THE CHARACTER IS IN BORN IN THE SEED....THE WEED IS ITS CHARACTER.... AT BEST IT CAN BE CUT..... BUT IT GROWS BACK ELSE WHERE.... WHERE IS THE CHOICE FOR ME OH REVERED MASTER.... FOR I LIVE A CHOICE LESS LIFE....THERE IS NO DESTINATION.... NO PATH.... NO TRAIL TO FOLLOW... WHAT IS IT I CAN DEVELOP.... I AM A NO PERSON.... I HAVE NO DOER SHIP... WHEN I DONT HAVE A DOER SHIP, HOW WILL I CULTIVATE? WHAT WILL I CULTIVATE.... THIS 'I' WHICH IS USED IS MORE FIGURATIVE AND HAS NO MEANING.... JUST TO MAKE U UNDERSTAND THIS 'I' AND 'ME' ARE USED... WHEN NOTHING IS UNDER MY CONTROL AND IS IN THE CONTROL OF GOD, HOW CAN I TWIST, TURN AND CULTIVATE? THIS IS MY CONDITION AND I THOROUGHLY ENJOY MY LIFE AS DESTINED BY THE LORD.... HE TAKES CARE OF EVERYTHING LIKE A MOTHER TAKING CARE OF A BORN KID....HEY BHAGAWAN, I NEITHER KNOW CULTIVATION NOR I KNOW OF ANY CHARACTER... 
I JUST PROSTRATED THE REVERED SAINT AND LEFT THE PLACE AS HE LOOKED AT ME.................LORD'S GRACE...

SOME YEARS BACK A VERY LEARNED SCHOLAR WAS GIVING A DISCOURSE ON 'KRISHNA LEELA' ON TV...I HAPPENED TO WATCH IT DURING MY CASUAL VISIT TO ONE OF MY DISCIPLE'S HOME...AFTER THE PROGRAMME WAS OVER...
DISCIPLE... IT WAS VERY BEAUTIFUL GURUJI...
WE... YES... MASTERPIECE ..
BUT IT WAS MORE A STATEMENTS OF SORTS... HIS ECSTASY AND JOY, I COULD NOT FEEL.. THE SAME THING IN YOUR CASE TOO... YOU GO IN SEARCH OF YOUR OWN 'KRISHNA'... YOU FEEL YOUR ECSTASY AND MOMENTS WITH HIM... U WILL HAVE YOUR OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF HIS LEELAS.. HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING TO LIVE ON BORROWED STATEMENTS... U ONLY DRANK JAGGERY WATER NOW... U WANT TO TASTE THE HONEY, U GO AND SEARCH UR 'KRISHNA' WHO IS HIDDEN IN YOUR HEART.. THESE DISCOURSES SHOULD TEMPT YOU TO GO IN TO THE UNCHARTERED TERRITORY OF YOUR HEART TO TASTE THE HONEY OF LORD KRISHNA... OTHERWISE ITS JUST WASTE OF TIME.. MANY IN THIS COUNTRY ARE WASTING TIME HEARING DISCOURSES WITHOUT THE END EFFECT OF ENTERING THE HEART TO FIND THE LORD... U WILL SEE BETTER LEELAS AND U CAN UNDERSTAND THE COMPASSION OF THE 'PARAMA' ON THE ' JIVA'...

SUHAS DEV IS A SWEET GUY... HIS ONLY CONCERN IN THIS WORLD IS ' SOME REST' ' SOME SLEEP' FOR ME... FOR HIS SAKE MANY TIMES I JUST LOG OUT OF FB OR PRETEND WITHOUT TYPING ANY COMMENTS OR POSTS FOR A FEW HOURS... WE R LAZY GUYS EVEN TO FALL ASLEEP.. PROBABLY WE WERE 'KUMBAKARNAS' IN THE PAST... THOUGH HIS CONCERN IS WELL APPRECIATED, NOTHING IS IN OUR HANDS AND LORD'S WILL, MERCY AND GRACE ALONE PREVAILS...

SAINT....ONLY MAKE PROMISES YOU CAN KEEP.....
I COULD NOT CONTROL MY LAUGHTER....SO I LAUGHED....IT WAS A BIT LOUD.... I DID FEEL EMBARRASSED WHEN EVERY ONE LOOKED AT ME....
SAINT....WHAT IS SO FUNNY I SAID NOW, THAT MADE U TO LAUGH...
ME...OH LEARNED AND REVERED MASTER.... I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS ON THIS IF I AM PERMITTED TO DO SO IN THIS AUGUST GATHERING OF THE LEARNED....
SAINT....U MAY GO AHEAD....
ME.... A 'PROMISE' IS MORE CONNECTED TO THE FUTURE.... THIS 'PROMISE' IS MADE BY THE CONCERNED PERSON TODAY....THIS MOMENT IS CERTAINLY CERTAIN.... THIS PERSON WHO MAKES THE 'PROMISE' KEEPS TODAY'S CIRCUMSTANCES IN MIND AND COMMITS..... FUTURE IS UNCERTAIN.... TODAY'S CIRCUMSTANCES AND FUTURE CIRCUMSTANCES WILL CERTAINLY VARY, SINCE LIFE IS DYNAMIC AND KEEPS CHANGING ON A CONTINUOUS BASIS... THERE IS NO GUARANTEE ABOUT THE FUTURE... UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES HOW ONE CAN GIVE A 'PROMISE' KEEPING THE CERTAIN PRESENT IN MIND AND MATCHING IT WITH AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE.... FURTHER THE STATEMENT READS...'ONLY MAKE PROMISES WHICH U CAN KEEP'..... HOW CAN ONE KNOW IN VIEW OF EVER CHANGING FUTURE WHAT PROMISE HE CAN KEEP OR NOT KEEP.... SO IN OUR OPINION THE STATEMENT IN IMPRACTICAL AND CANNOT BE IMPLEMENTED....HENCE I LAUGHED....
THE SAINT WAS KIND ENOUGH TO CALL ME TO THE PODIUM AND HUGGED ME..... I PROSTRATED HIM 3 TIMES AND LEFT THE PLACE......LORD'S GRACE...



A FEW YEARS BACK.....ON PHONE, A CALL FROM DELHI......

HE.....OK GURUJI....YOU PLEASE PASS ON YOUR WISHES TO THE YOUNG COUPLE....

I JUST BURST IN TO LAUGHTER..............................ROFL

**************************************************************************************

SOME TIMES PEOPLE ASK ME WHY NOT YOU TALK ON BHAGAVAD GITA OR VIVEKA CHOODAMANI OR UPANISHADS ETC., I USED TO LAUGH AT THEM..... NOW HEAR THIS STORY....YOU WILL KNOW WHY I BEHAVE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY I BEHAVE........
***************************************************************************************

IN A CITY A BABA HAD COME AND WAS GIVING DISCOURSES ON VARIOUS SPIRITUAL ASPECTS OF LIFE..... ONE PERSON WHO USED TO REGULARLY ATTEND WAS A MINISTER.... BABA USED TO GIVE PRIVATE AUDIENCE TO THE MINISTER.... THE MINISTER USED TO ASK BABA VARIOUS DIVINE ASPECTS OF LIFE AND THEY BOTH USED DISCUSS IN DETAIL....

MINISTER....BABA, I WOULD LIKE TO BRING THE KING OF THIS PLACE TO YOU.... CAN I HAVE YOUR PERMISSION TO DO THAT?... I WANT THE KING TO BE BENEFITTED BY HIS INTERACTION WITH YOU.....

BABA....PLEASE BRING THE KING.....

THE MINISTER BROUGHT THE KING AND LEFT THE KING ALONE WITH BABA AND WAS WAITING OUTSIDE THE ROOM.....

BABA LOOKED AT THE FACE OF THE KING AND SMILED....

BABA....SO YOU ARE THE KING OF THE PLACE?....

KING....YES BABA....

BABA....HOW BIG IS YOUR PALACE?

KING WAS SURPRISED AT THE WAY BABA WAS ASKING QUESTION...

KING... VERY BIG...WE HAVE 100 ROOMS , A VERY BIG DURBAR HALL, A DANCING HALL, A CONFERENCE HALL, A LIBRARY ETC.,

BABA...HOW MANY WIVES AND KIDS YOU HAVE?

THOUGH THE KING WAS ASTONISHED HE CONTINUED...

KING...I HAVE 4 WIVES AND 8 CHILDREN....

BABA...HOW MUCH GOLD, SILVER, AND GEMS YOU HAVE IN YOUR TREASURY?

THE KING THOUGHT HE IS WASTING TIME AND TOOK LEAVE OF THE BABA AND CAME OUTSIDE THE ROOM WHERE THE MINISTER WAS WAITING FOR HIM....

KING....YOU SAID , THIS BABA IS A PARAMA GYANI...FULL OF WISDOM.....HE DISCUSSES THE DIVINE SIDE OF LIFE IN DEPTH... BUT I FOUND HIM TOTALLY MATERIALISTIC AND WAS ONLY ASKING QUESTIONS WHICH DO NOT BEFIT A SAGE...

THE MINISTER TOOK THE KING AND RE-ENTERED BABA'S ROOM AND SAID..... BABA, YOU USED TO DISCUSS SO MANY FINER ASPECTS OF THE DIVINE PART OF LIFE AND GUIDE ME SPIRITUALLY... WHY R U NOT SO WITH THE KING?....

BABA LAUGHED AND SAID... THOUGH YOU ARE A MINISTER, YOU HAVE MORE INTEREST ON THE META PHYSICAL ASPECT OF LIFE... YOU HAVE THE DRIVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH BEYOND MATERIAL ASPECTS OF LIFE... HENCE I USED TO DISCUSS WITH YOU ALL THAT.... BUT WHEN I SAW YOUR KING'S FACE, HE WAS MORE IN TO EXPANSION OF KINGDOM, FAMILY AND WEALTH.... SO I WAS ASKING HIM QUESTIONS TO COLLECT THE DETAILS OF HIS MATERIAL SIDE OF LIFE....I THOUGHT I CAN DISCUSS ABOUT THESE MATERIAL THINGS ONCE HE ANSWERS MY QUESTIONS.... BUT HE LEFT HALF WAY DISAPPOINTED AND OFFENDED .... A MASTER ALWAYS SPEAKS THE LANGUAGE WHAT THE OTHER PERSON KNOWS... IF I TALK ON META PHYSICAL ASPECT OF LIFE YOUR KING CANNOT UNDERSTAND ANYTHING... WHAT IS THE POINT IN TALKING WITH HIM A SUBJECT WHICH HE CANNOT UNDERSTAND? WHAT HE CAN UNDERSTAND WAS ONLY SPOKEN TO HIM.....

BABA SMILED AT THE KING AND THE KING PUT HIS HEAD DOWN IN SHAME.................................LORD'S GRACE...

**************************************************************************************

THERE WAS A BIG SNAKE IN A VILLAGE..... IT USED TO BITE EVERY ONE.....THE PEOPLE WERE VERY SCARED.....

ONE DAY A SAINT VISITED THE VILLAGE.... THE VILLAGERS INFORMED THE SAINT ABOUT THE SNAKE AND SOUGHT HIS DIVINE INTERVENTION.....

THE SAINT WAS TAKEN TO THE SPOT WHERE THE SNAKE IS USUALLY IS SPOTTED.....

THE SNAKE APPEARED BEFORE THE SAINT.... THE SAINT HAD HIS OWN WAY OF COMMUNICATION.... HE TOLD THE SNAKE HENCEFORTH NOT TO BITE ANY ONE.... THE SNAKE ALSO AGREED TO THE SAINT'S VIEW.....

THE SNAKE CHANGED ITS BEHAVIOUR AND BECAME LITERALLY A SAINT.... PEOPLE NOTICED THE CHANGE.... NOW THEY STARTED TAKING REVENGE ON THS SNAKE.... ANY WHERE THE SNAKE IS SEEN, PEOPLE USED TO HIT IT WITH STICKS AND STONES.... THOUGH THE SNAKE SUFFERED A LOT OF INJURIES AND ALWAYS ITS BODY WAS BLOOD SOAKED....

THE SAINT CAME BACK TO THE VILLAGE ON HIS YEARLY SOJOURN... HE WENT TO THE SPOT WHERE THE SNAKE IS USUALLY SPOTTED.... ON ARRIVAL OF THE SNAKE , THE SAINT WAS SHOCKED TO SEE THE SNAKE IN WOUNDED CONDITION SOAKED WITH BLOOD...

SAINT.....WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU....

SNAKE...BABA, YOU ASKED ME NOT TO BITE ANYONE AND SO I STOPPED THE PRACTICE OF BITING PEOPLE.... THE PEOPLE STARTED STONING ME WHEREVER THEY SEE... STILL I WANTED TO KEEP UP MY WORD AND DID NOT RETALIATE.... BUT MY CONDITION IS BECOMING WORSE DAY BY DAY...KINDLY HELP...

SAINT....I ASKED YOU NOT TO BITE...THATS TRUE.... BUT I DIDNT ASK YOU NOT TO HISS WHEN SOME ONE COMES NEAR YOU WITH A WRONG INTENTION.... SO START HISSING WHEN SOME ONE COMES NEAR YOU TO HARM YOU.... THIS IS A WORLD WHERE , WHEN A SINNER BECOMES A SAINT, THE PEOPLE THINK IT IS THEIR WEAKNESS AND SEEK REVENGE OF THE PAST.... YOU HAVE A RIGHT UNDER THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES TO DEFEND YOURSELF...SO START 'HISSING'.......................LORD'S GRACE....

***************************************************************************************

ONE DAY AS I WAS WALKING IN THE FOREST, 'BRINDA' ACCOMPANIED ME ON MY WALK.... SHE WAS VERY DEPRESSED... SINCE I HAD NOT VISITED THE FOREST FOR MORE THAN FOUR MONTHS.... NORMALLY SHE EXPECTS ME ONCE IN 45 DAYS... SOME TIMES IT SO HAPPENS I DONT STICK UP TO THIS SCHEDULE... LAST SHE SAW ME WAS 4 MONTHS BACK.... UNDUE DELAY.... I APOLOGISED TO HER....

ME...I AM EXTREMELY SORRY BRINDA, I COULD NOT KEEP UP MY SCHEDULE....THIS TIME I HAVE INORDINATELY DELAYED SEEING YOU....

BRINDA...ITS OKAY....WHO AM I TO DIRECT YOU TO STICK TO SCHEDULE?.... NOT JUST ME, YOU KNOW WE ALL LOVE YOU AND LOVE TO SEE YOU AS MANY TIMES AS POSSIBLE...

ME...YEAH I CAN UNDERSTAND.... BUT IN MY KIND OF LIFE NOTHING IS CERTAIN.....

BRINDA....THERE IS NOTHING CERTAIN FOR US ALSO... 

ME...IS THAT SO?

BRINDA.... AS THOUGH U DONT KNOW...

ME....YEAH....I REMEMBER...NOW A DAYS MY MEMORY IS FALLING SHORT....

BRINDA....THIS IS WHAT I LIKE MOST IN YOU.... YOU JOKE.... I CANT BELIEVE THAT YOUR MEMORY IS SHORT.... YOU HAVE YOUR OWN REASONS TO BEHAVE SO AND I CANT QUESTION YOU ON THAT...

ME...WHAT MAKES YOU TO THINK THAT WAY?

BRINDA....WHEN THE MIND PLAYS A ROLE, WE TEND TO SUSPECT EVERYTHING WE COME ACROSS AND WE QUESTION.... WHEN HEART PLAYS A ROLE WE TEND TO REPOSE TOTAL FAITH... YOU KNOW WELL I DONT BELONG TO MIND AND I BELONG TO HEART... MY HEART KNOWS TOO WELL THAT YOU DO EVERYTHING FOR GOOD.... AT LEAST I KNOW YOU FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS... MAHARISHI RAJAR ALWAYS USED TO TALK ABOUT YOU TO ME WHENEVER I USED TO BE AROUND HIS PLACE....HE NEVER SPOKE TO ME ABOUT ANY ONE ELSE OTHER THAN YOU....YOU KNOW THAT I WAS BORN IN MAHARISHI'S HUT.... YOU ONLY BROUGHT ME OUT OF MY MOTHER'S WOMB AND SHE HAD A SAFE DELIVERY AT THAT TIME....

ME...IS THAT SO? ONCE AGAIN MY MEMORY IS FALTERING....

BRINDA...I DONT KNOW WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME.... ALWAYS PRETENDING WITH ME AND POSING AS THOUGH YOU DONT KNOW...

ME....BRINDA, IS IT THAT I AM PRETENDING OR IS IT THAT YOU ARE PRETENDING..... I KNOW BRINDA ALWAYS TESTS ME AND HENCE AS A TRUE DISCIPLE SUBSERVIENT TO THE MASTER, THOUGH I DID PERFORM THE ACT, I DONT ACKNOWLEDGE TO HAVE DONE... I AM NOT THE DOER AND LORD IS THE DOER.... I LOVE YOU MAINLY FOR THIS.... AT EVERY TIME YOU SAY SOMETHING TO FIND OUT WHETHER MY EGO LEVELS HAVE GONE UP.... DONT I KNOW THAT IT IS SAGE AGASTYA'S WIFE LOPAMUDRA WHO HAS BEEN BORN AS 'BRINDA' THE SWEET TIGRESS......

'BRINDA' STOPPED...LOOKED AT ME.... I COULD SEE THE MOTHERLINESS AND COMPASSION IN HER EYES....

BRINDA.... THIS IS WHY I LOVE YOU MORE.... UR HUMILITY AND HUMBLENESS ATTRACTS ME.... UR GRATITUDE IS IMBIBED IN YOUR SOUL..... HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT TIME.... COME BACK SOON....

AS SHE SAID, SHE LEFT JUMPING JOYOUSLY IN TO THE JUNGLE ON TO MY LEFT..... IN THE DIRECTION SHE LEFT, I OFFERED TRIPLE PROSTRATIONS TO THE GREAT MASTER LOPAMUDRA, THE DIVINE WIFE OF SAGE AGASTYA.................PURELY LORD'S GRACE....

************************************************************************************


I REMEMBER AN INCIDENT WHICH HAPPENED A FEW YEARS BACK....

A PERSON VERY WELL KNOWN TO ME DID SOME ACT ON ACCOUNT OF WHICH I HAD TO GO THROUGH SOME DISCOMFORT FINANCIALLY.... HE ALSO WENT TO THE EXTENT OF TELLING SOME PEOPLE THAT HE DIDNT OWE ANY MONEY TO ME SINCE HE HAD NOT BORROWED AT ALL.... THE PERSONS WHO HEARD THIS WERE NOT AWARE OF THE INCIDENT THAT HE HAD BORROWED MONEY... SO IT WAS A SURPRISE FOR THEM SINCE I HAD NOT DISCLOSED ANY ONE THAT I HAD BORROWED SOME LOAN TO HELP THIS GENTLEMAN.... THEY ALL CAME TO ME AND ASKED, WHETHER I HAD GIVEN ANY MONEY TO HIM.... I SAID THAT I HAVE NO MONEY TO GIVE, SO FROM WHERE I WILL GIVE MONEY TO HIM.... THEY DIDNT BELIEVE ME BUT COULD NOT CONTEST MY WORDS....

JUST NOW I RECEIVED A CALL FROM THAT GENTLEMAN....

HE...I AM VERY SORRY FOR MY BEHAVIOUR.... OF LATE I AM FEELING GUILTY THAT I HAVE SPOKEN UNTRUTH TO OTHERS....

ME...I DONT UNDERSTAND YOUR STATEMENT AT ALL....

HE...DONT U REMEMBER, I BORROWED MONEY FROM YOU?

ME...NEVER....WHEN DID I HAVE SURPLUS MONEY TO GIVE IT TO YOU....

HE...U DID NOT HAVE.... BUT YOU BORROWED SOME WHERE AND OBLIGED ME... I PROMISED TO RETURN IN 3 MONTHS AND I DID NOT RETURN... YOU DID NOT ASK ANYTHING ANY TIME ABOUT IT AND JUST KEPT QUIET.....

ME....I THINK YOU HAVE SOME AMNESIA PROBLEM.... IT MIGHT BE THAT YOU BORROWED FROM SOME ONE AND YOU THINK ITS ME... ABSOLUTELY NO... YOU DONT OWE ANY MONEY TO ME AND U HAVE NOT BORROWED FROM ME....

HE STARTED CRYING.....

HE SAID.... I AM FEELING VERY GUILTY.... PLEASE HELP ME TO COME OUT OF THIS GUILT....

ME....SEE I WILL TELL YOU SOME THING.... IT MAY BE LIKE THIS... IN MY PREVIOUS BIRTH, I MIGHT HAVE BORROWED MONEY FROM YOU...I MIGHT HAVE ALSO TOLD LIES TO OTHERS THAT I HAD NOT BORROWED FROM YOU.... THIS HAS RESULTED IN A LIABILITY FOR ME IN THIS BIRTH.... SO THE MONEY WHICH I GAVE YOU IS YOUR OWN RIGHT AND THERE IS NOTHING TO FEEL GUILTY ABOUT IT... PAST IS PAST .....ITS ALREADY GONE.... THERE IS NO USE LIVING IN THE PAST.. PAST DOES NOT EXIST IN ANY WAY OTHER THAN YOUR MEMORY.....

ITS LONG SINCE WE MET..... WHY NOT YOU COME DOWN SOME TIME.... WE WILL GO TO 'VASANTHA BHAVAN' IN BANJARA HILLS AND HAVE SOME IDLY AND COFFEE.... IT TASTES REAL GOOD....

LORD'S WILL. MERCY AND GRACE.....

*************************************************************************************

OH HOW WONDERFUL IT IS, WHEN LORD TAKES MY TONGUE AND LIPS AND SPEAKS THROUGH THEM...HE TAKES MY MIND AND POURS OUT HIS THOUGHTS....WHEN IT COMES TO HEART, HE SETS IT ON FIRE.... THANK YOU MY LORD FOR ALL THAT YOU DO...

**************************************************************************************


HE.....GURUJI, I AM WORRIED ABOUT MY GREEN CARD....

ME....WHY DO U WORRY? IN CASE IT DOESNT COME ALSO ITS GOOD....UR PARENTS ARE ALONE HERE... YOU CAN COME, TAKE A SMALL JOB AND BE OF USE TO THEM BY STAYING WITH THEM....

NOW A DAYS HE DOESNT CALL ME...................ONE MORE WICKET DOWN..........LOL

**************************************************************************************
IT WAS A HOT DAY....IT WAS ONE CLOCK IN THE AFTERNOON.. AFTER COMPLETING THE FIRE WORSHIP I WALKED INSIDE THE FOREST FOR DHYANA IN SECLUSION...... I HAVE TO START THE DHYANA IN THREE AND HALF HOURS OF TIME AFTER THE HOMAM.... I WALKED FOR TWO HOURS...I SAW THE CLOCK AND THE TIME WAS THREE FIFTEEN IN THE AFTERNOON.. I REACHED A SPOT WHERE THERE WAS A BIG TREE... I WAS VERY TIRED... SO I THOUGHT OF TAKING A NAP BEFORE STARTING MY MEDITATION...
I SLEPT BELOW THE TREE.... TO MY KNOWLEDGE I WOULD HAVE SLEPT FOR MORE THAN 12 HOURS.... SUDDENLY I WOKE UP AND LOOKED AT MY WATCH.... IT SHOWED TIME AS 3.30 AM NEXT MORNING.... THE DATE HAD ALSO CHANGED....
INTERESTINGLY WHEN I LOOKED AROUND, FROM THE SHADOWS OF THE TREES AND POSITION OF THE SUN THE TIME WOULD HAVE BEEN AROUND 4 PM.... OFFICIALLY I HAD SLEPT ONLY FOR 45 MINUTES.....I IMMEDIATELY STARTED MY DHYANA....
I WONDERED AT THE LORD'S LEELA....LITERALLY HE STOPPED TIME, SO THAT I COULD COMPLETE THE DHYANA WITHIN THE STIPULATED TIME OTHERWISE THE PRAYOGAM DONE WOULD HAVE BEEN A WASTE.... FURTHER I SHOULD HAVE DONE PRAYASCHITTHAM AND RESTARTED THE PRAYOGAM....LORD'S THY NAME IS MERCY AND MERCY ALONE.....
WHEN I LOOK BACK, I KEEP WONDERING ABOUT THIS INCIDENT IN MY LIFE....
LORD'S WILL, MERCY AND GRACE.....

SRI RAMASWAMY CHETTIAR WAS A VERY NICE AND A HUMBLE PHILANTHROPIST WHO LIVED IN A VILLAGE NEAR DEVAKOTTAI... HE HAD A WONDERFUL ART WHICH WAS BLESSED BY A GREAT SAINT TO HIS GREAT GRAND FATHER.... ON THE DEATH BED OF THE GREAT GRAND FATHER, THE SAINT APPEARED AND ASKED THE GREAT GRAND FATHER TO GIVE UPDESHA OF A MANTRA OF HIS CHOICE.... SRI RAMASWAMY CHETTIAR WAS JUST 5 YEARS OLD WHEN HE WHISPERED THE MANTRA IN HIS EARS.... AFTER THE DEATH OF HIS GREAT GRAND FATHER, SRI RAMASWAMY CHETTIAR ATTAINED THE GIFT OF THE WONDERFUL ART WHICH WAS BLESSED BY THE SAINT TO HIS GREAT GRAND FATHER.... NOW THE LEGACY HAS TO CONTINUE.....THIS CAN BE PASSED ON ONLY TO MALES....
NOW SRI RAMASWAMY CHETTIAR IS ON DEATH BED AND HE WANTS TO PASS ON THE LEGACY....
1. CHETTIAR HAD ONLY ONE DAUGHTER AND SHE IN TURN GAVE BIRTHS TO TWO DAUGHTERS.... BOTH ARE MARRIED AND DONT HAVE KIDS YET.....
2. CHETTIAR HAS A FAITHFUL SERVANT WHO HAS ALWAYS REMAINED WITH HIM FOR 50 YEARS BY NAME ARUNACHALAM....SOME TIMES HE USED TO GO TO HIS VILLAGE AND WILL NOT TURN UP FOR WEEKS...
3. CHETTIAR HAS A NIECE THROUGH WHOM BOYS ARE AVAILABLE....BUT THE BOYS SEEM TO BE NOT INTERESTED...
I HAD CASUALLY VISITED CHETTIAR AND CHETTIAR EXPRESSED HIS CONCERN OF PASSING ON THE LEGACY, ABOUT THE MANTRA UPADESHA FOR KNOWING THE WONDERFUL ART WHICH HIS ANCESTOR WAS BLESSED WITH.....
'TO MY KNOWLEDGE, NO ONE SEEM ELIGIBLE... SO ASK YOUR PEOPLE TO DUG A PIT 1 FOOT X 1 FOOT X 1 FOOT'....
A PIT WAS DUG.... I ASKED RAMASWAMY CHETTIAR TO GIVE BACK THE MANTRA TO BHOOMA WHO WILL DECIDE AS TO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE.....THE SAME WAS DONE BY CHETTIAR.....
AFTER A FEW YEARS, I SAW A PLANT IN TRANSFORMATION OF BECOMING A TREE.... THE HOUSE WAS SOLD..... THE NEW BUYER REMOVED THE TREE.... LUCKY I WAS THERE.... I PAID THE PRICE AND TOOK THE TREE... I GOT THE TREE CUT IN TO SMALL LOGS AND GAVE IT TO AN ASHRAM....
NOW I AM JUST LEFT WITH THE ROOTS OF THE TREE.....
LORD'S GRACE.....

I HAVE A FRIEND AND I CALL HIM JAYANTHA.....HE USED TO WANDER WITH ME IN THE FOREST.... WE USED TO PLAY WITH EACH OTHER... SOME TIMES WE USED TO BE ENGAGED IN SERIOUS DISCUSSIONS.... WE USED TO DISCUSS VARIETY OF TOPICS FROM ARTHA, TO NYAYA TO DHARMA ETC.,
ONE DAY JAYANTHA SAID..... 'I WANT TO BE GOOD..... I DON'T WANT TO KILL ANIMALS IN THE FOREST FOR MY FEED.... SOME HOW HAVING MOVED WITH YOU ALL THESE YEARS AND TALKING TO YOU, I HAVE COME TO THIS DECISION'.....
I SAID....'JAYANTHA, WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY, YOU HAVE TO HUNT FOR FOOD.... NO ONE IS GOING TO SUPPLY FOOD TO YOU.... IN FACT IF YOU DON'T HUNT, YOU WILL DIE OUT OF HUNGER.... YOUR DUTY AS A FOREST DWELLER IS TO HUNT FOOD, EAT IT AND SURVIVE.... YOU ARE NOT AN ASCETIC TO PRACTICE AHIMSA'.....
JAYANTHA SAID....'NO.... I HAVE DECIDED NOT TO HUNT FROM TODAY.... I HAVE HEARD A LOT OF STORIES FROM YOU.... YOU ALWAYS ENTERTAINED ME WITH YOUR STORIES ON DHARMA AND NYAYA..... INCASE I DIE, BY PRACTISING AHIMSA, I KNOW VERY WELL THAT MY NEXT BIRTH WILL BE ON A TOTALLY DIFFERENT PLATFORM.... I HAVE A REQUEST... IN CASE I DIE, YOU HAVE TO CREMATE ME IN THIS FOREST... MY SOUL WILL BE PLEASED'....
I SAID....'OK JAYANTHA....AS DESIRED BY YOU, I WILL CREMATE YOU.... PLEASE COME WITH ME'....
I TOOK JAYANTHA TO A PLACE WHERE THERE WAS A RIVULET FLOWING..... THIS PART OF THE FOREST HAS PLENTY OF SHADE BECAUSE OF BIG TREES AND SHRUBS....I REQUESTED HIM TO STAY THERE AND KEEP SIPPING WATER TILL HIS DEATH..... I LEFT THE FOREST....
I CAME BACK TO THE FOREST AFTER A GAP OF 12 DAYS.... JAYANTHA WAS MOTIONLESS BUT WAS STILL ALIVE.... I SAT DOWN AND KEPT HIS HEAD ON MY THIGHS.... I POURED FEW DROPS OF GANGA WATER IN TO HIS MOUTH WHICH I CARRIED..... JAYANTHA PEACEFULLY PASSED AWAY ON MY LAP.....
I CREMATED JAYANTHA, THE WONDERFUL PANTHER WHO WAS MY GOOD FRIEND IN THE FOREST.....
TODAY MORNING, I RECEIVED A CALL FROM ONE FAMILY WHOM I KNOW WELL THAT A SON IS BORN TO THEIR DAUGHTER ... I KNEW THAT MY GOOD OLD FRIEND JAYANTHA HAS ARRIVED IN THIS NEW AVATAR.....
LORD'S WILL, MERCY AND GRACE....


I KNOW A PERSON WHO USED TO ENJOY SAYING THAT HE CAN TALK TO SOULS/SPIRITS ETC.,.....
I KNOW THAT HE WAS A BIG LIAR AND WAS CHEATING PEOPLE....
HE USED TO VISIT EERIE PLACES AND SPEND HOURS OF TIME.... EVERY TIME HE WILL SAY THAT HE WAS SPEAKING TO THE SOUL OF 'X' OR 'Y' OR 'Z'..... THE USED TO SAY THAT THE SOUL IS SUFFERING AND NEEDS HELP..... HE USED TO COLLECT MONEY ON THIS PRETEXT FROM THE RELATIVES OF DEPARTED SOUL....I HAD WARNED HIM THAT HE WAS PLAYING A DANGEROUS GAME....
THIS WAS GOING ON FOR YEARS.....
SUDDENLY ONE DAY HIS MOTHER CRIED ON PHONE TO ME AND ASKED ME TO COME HOME.... I WENT TO HIS PLACE....
HE LOOKED MENTALLY DERANGED....
I ASKED HIS MOTHER AS TO WHAT HAPPENED....
SHE SAID.....'YESTERDAY, HE WENT TO SOME ONE'S PLACE AND TOLD THEM THAT SOUL WAS SUFFERING AND HE WOULD RELIEVE IT FROM THAT SUFFERING.... HE DID SOME POOJA AT NIGHT AT THEIR PLACE..... THOSE PEOPLE BROUGHT HIM IN THIS CONDITION BACK HOME'....
WHEN I SAW HIS FACE, IT WAS CLEAR THAT FOR THE FIRST TIME HE HAS SIGHTED SOMETHING AND VIRTUALLY GONE MAD.....
ME...... 'DONT WORRY..... TAKE HIM TO SHOLINGUR AND STAY IN THAT STHALAM FOR 48 DAYS.... LORD YOGA NRUSIMHA SWAMY AND YOGA ANJANEYA SWAMY WILL CURE THIS AILMENT.....BUT YOU HAVE TO STAY IN THAT STHALAM AND DAILY TAKE HIM TO BOTH THE TEMPLES ON THE SEPARATE HILL LOCKS EVERY DAY AND GIVE HIM THE THEERTHA PRASADAM (HOLY WATER)'.....
DURING MY NEXT VISIT TO FOREST, I HAD TO DO A PRAYOGAM, PRAYING TO LORD YOGA NRUSIMHA AND YOGA ANJANEYA... HIS MOTHER DEDICATEDLY STAYED FOR 48 DAYS IN THE STHALAM.....
FINALLY HE CAME BACK TO SENSES..... NOW A DAYS HE DOESN'T INDULGE IN SUCH GIMMICKS....

LORD'S GRACE....OUR PRAYERS....

AN INDIAN WAS TRAVELLING WITH ME ALMOST A DECADE BACK.... I WAS ON A PLANE FROM ATHENS TO BANGKOK....
AFTER SOME FORMAL SMILES....
HE ASKED ME....'WHAT ARE YOU DOING?'.....
I SAID....'FLYING IN A BOEING 747 WITH YOU TO BANGKOK FROM ATHENS'....
HE.....'NO NO.... THAT I KNOW.... WHAT DO YOU DO OTHERWISE? ARE YOU A BUSINESS MAN OR A LAWYER OR AN ACCOUNTANT OR A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL?'
ME... 'I RUN AN ASYLUM FOR THE MENTALLY RETARDED'....
HE.....'OH....THAT'S GREAT..... IT'S A VERY NOBLE WORK... HOW DO YOU MANAGE YOUR FUNDS? '....
ME....'THE INMATES OF THE ASYLUM FUND ME'.....
HE....'PROBABLY THE PARENTS OR THE SONS OR THE DAUGHTERS OR RELATIVES OR FRIENDS OF THE INMATES FUND YOU TO RUN THE ASYLUM'.....
ME.....'NO YOU ARE WRONG.... MY INMATES THEMSELVES FUND ME'.....
HE.....'IMPOSSIBLE.... YOU SAID THEY ARE MENTALLY RETARDED..... HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR THE MENTALLY RETARDED TO FUND YOU? I DON'T BELIEVE THIS'....
ME....'IT'S OK IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE... I STAND BY WHAT I HAVE SAID'....
HE.....'YOU PUZZLE ME'.....
ME....'TODAY AFTERNOON, WHEN YOU WERE SITTING IN THE RESTAURANT WITH YOUR FRIEND YOU SAID ALL RELIGIOUS GUYS ARE MADCAPS..... THEY ARE MENTALLY RETARDED PEOPLE.... THEY ARE FIT TO LIVE IN AN ASYLUM.... IS IT NOT?'.....
HE LOOKED STUNNED....
HE....'HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS?'.....
I LAUGHED AND SAID....'PROBABLY I WAS SITTING SOME WHERE CLOSE TO YOU TODAY, THAT I CHANCED TO OVER HEAR THAT ARGUMENT.... I HAVE A NEWS FOR YOU TODAY'..
HE....'WHAT NEWS?'.....
ME.....'SHORTLY YOU ARE GOING TO BE ADMITTED IN ONE SUCH ASYLUM'....
HE WAS PERSPIRING.....
TODAY HE IS A MONK CONVERTED TO BUDDHISM.... I HAPPENED TO MEET HIM ONE DAY AT HEATHROW AIRPORT LONDON....
I SMILED AND BOWED AT HIM.....
HE SMILED AND SAID....'NOW I TOO BELONG TO THE ASYLUM OF MENTALLY RETARDED'....
WE BOTH BURST IN TO LAUGHTER...
LORD'S GRACE.....
